Where I live

documentary heritage
  • Description

    "?In South Auckland strangers offer warm smiles, talking to one another like they know each other. They say, ?Thank you,? ?Please,? and ?Sorry.? That lets you know they?re being sincere and they mean it. I feel safe and I feel warm where I live, in my home in South Auckland.?

    Where I Live celebrates growing up in South Auckland. In this book, 11 students from St Mary MacKillop School in Mangere East describe the things they love about their amazing community. Teacher-author, David Riley, grew up in Mangere too, and helps the students find the words to express their thoughts. Be blessed, encouraged and inspired by these young people as they highlight the beauty of their home ? South Auckland."--Publisher Website.
